nuke configure -host-option
in its current form, it was introduced only in 5.7, mostly as a side effect of -external-hostbindir (which is now handled differently). it only ever worked for the macOS and MinGW specs, as a side effect of them supporting -sdk and -device-option (for good reasons), and was supported only by the unix configure. it's not believed to be really useful and complicates matters somewhat, so get rid of it again. should it ever become actually relevant, it can be re-introduced properly, probably along with a -host-sdk option for macOS.
